    The walls are about to close in on Dez Bryant.

    The Cowboys aren't paying him his current salary next year. He says he won't take a pay cut.

    But free agency lingers on. The money is drying up. The draft is around the corner. Rosters are cementing around the league.

    Whenever Dallas makes their counter offer, it will exceed what teams have to offer on the open market. It'll be "take it or leave it", and he'll either stay where he's comfortable for a LOT less money, or he'll leave in defiance and take an even lesser prove-it deal elsewhere.

    A team out there might be about to get a really good receiver for very cheap. Green Bay? New Orleans? New England? Seattle? Philadelphia?

    The biggest thing Dez has going against him right now is that I don't think the Cowboys really care if he's here or not.

    it's my experience that people who say "bye, felicia" are typically pretty corny.

    IF we did cut him, I am sure without a doubt that the Rams would pick him up, pay him and then have him wreak havoc again on the NFL with a real QB. Is it really checkmate if we aren't getting better by cutting him, but instead making another team and more than likely and NFC team, better by adding him?

    The money isn't really dried up in free agency. The 9ers and Rams need a WR and have tons of space and the Packers have around $13.5M in cap space.

    A lot of teams have space so it will be interesting to see what Dez and his people decide when Jerry approaches them about this pay cut.

    I will gladly put my posting rights for the upcoming season against anyone that thinks Dez is getting cut or will not be here. If he is cut/traded I will stop posting after the last pre-season game if he is on the roster come week one the ones that feel that he will be cut/traded cannot post starting after the lastpreseason game. Once week 17 is concluded posting can start back up.

    This thread is an opinion piece of someones wishful thinking

    He will be extended ......... given a roster bonus to lower his cap hit ........ and will be around for 3 more years.

    If the rumors are true if they get a wideout early he’s gone. I’d rather lb or safety and give dez one more year.

    Forum needs to be renamed to the “Dez Bryant Zone” for the remainder of the off season.

    Holy Jesus...

    I hope we keep him but the best thing he can do for his career is to leave Dallas and go to a team with a QB and real coach.

    He'll go to the HOF if he does that.

    Also, many people who use that phrase have no idea where it actually originated.

    Reality will end up being the opposite which is extending his contract which results in him playing here longer

    I don’t know what we will do with dez
    I do know that if he’s gone we will be using a very high pick to replace him
    The question becomes are we better building a stronger defense and adding a guard
    Or using a couple of your top 3 picks on offense
    We still don’t have a starting guard and if we use Collins then we don’t have a swing tackle

    I agree with you 100%. Dez will be lined up opposite Allen Hurns when the season starts.
